Jemima Austin

Jemima is a Paralegal in our Estate Planning & Administration Team.


I have been a part of the Estate Planning and Administration team within Murdoch Lawyers for the last four years after returning to Toowoomba and in total, I have more than eighteen years experience across most fields of law.

Within the Estate Planning and Administration team, I work mostly in deceased estate administration which I find both challenging and rewarding.

Estate administration involves many varying tasks depending on each particular estate. I enjoy helping executors work through the often confusing and daunting tasks that are necessary when a person dies. The role of an executor is extensive and often the executor has never been previously appointed in such a role.

It is very important to be both clear and empathetic in this area keeping in mind the loss and emotion the family are experiencing.

I explain each and every step, simply and clearly and I make every endeavor to run the matter efficiently and without delay.

I am a Justice of the Peace (Qualified) and in addition to my vast legal experience, I have a firm grounding in varied areas of administration from not only many years of service to the legal sector, but also within other industries in the Toowoomba and Darling Downs region.

I am equipped with an understanding of people from all walks of life.
